Guided Mound tours

Drink in the haunting beauty of this Anglo Saxon site with a tour that takes you onto the famous Mound One burial. You will be in the safe and expert hands of one of our volunteer guides who will bring to life the warrior leader laid to rest and the extraordinary excavations underway when Britain was on the brink of a war.
